2 – Why Peaky Blinders fans may enjoy Animal Kingdom

Animal Kingdom follows the Cody family, an experienced heist crew made up of four brothers and led by their mother, Smurf. The series kicks off when the brothers’ nephew, Josh, comes to live at their home and gets pulled into their crime operations. As the seasons continue and Josh becomes more experienced with pulling off robbery jobs, the power dynamic in their own personal in-house animal kingdom sees a major shift.

Does one of the guys in the picture above look familiar? He should! Finn Cole stars in Animal Kingdom as J Cody, but Peaky Blinders fans know him as Michael Gray. The Cody brothers have a different style than the Shelby brothers, but they also have something major in common: knowing how to “creatively” break the law to gain power and take what they want. If you love watching loyal crime families with a knack for criminal problem solving, schemes, and manipulation, you should absolutely step into the world of Animal Kingdom.

Animal Kingdom Seasons 1 -3 are available to stream on Amazon Prime Video, and Season 4 will likely be available later this year ahead of the Season 5 premiere. Alternatively, you can stream Season 4 episodes (they post four to five episodes from the latest season at a time) on TNT if you have a cable subscription.
